Saint Margaret’s Chapel, Edinburgh, Scotland

I had the privilege of visiting Edinburgh, Scotland with a friend over the past 2 years.  We decided not to go this year but I am reminded of the beauty, fun and eloquence of visiting The Royal Mile.  Edinburgh Castle sits on volcanic rock at the top of Royal Mile.  I was out of breath when I reached the top of the Royal Mile, even though I did not walk a mile!  St. Margaret’s Chapel is the oldest building in Edinburgh.  It was first built in the 12th century and was not used after the reformation.  Fortunately, it was restored in 1851-1852 with the support of Queen Victoria.  Interesting to note that the style of architecture was during the reign of David.  I thought that was pretty cool!
